Reducing Bottles in the BathroomI am always looking for ways to reduce the clutter and "stuff" in my home. My latest campaign has been in the bathroom. I mean how many jars and bottles do we NEED to keep ourselves clean and beautiful?
AreaH2O Hair Products for Hard WaterYou can buy special shampoo and conditioner for hard and soft water areas. Try the brand AreaH20.
Refill Soap Dispenser With ShampooWhen my local dollar store has a sale on shampoo I like to stock up. The bargains usually come in gigantic bottles. They are much too big to keep in the shower and hard to handle when you're wet and soapy.
Shampoo With Baking SodaFor the shampoo, I put about a tablespoon of baking soda in a jar, and add a cup of warm water. Mix it first, and spread it throughout your scalp, and massage it in well.
Deep Clean Your Hair With Baking SodaI read in a book that washing your hair weekly with baking soda takes all the build-up from hair products and such out of your hair. You just add about a half a palm full to your shampoo for the night and wash your hair as usual.
Change Shampoo MonthlyAfter much displeasure with my hair, and after trying all the suggestions I received from friends and family, I decided that maybe my hair needed a change of shampoo. I found that by changing my shampoo every month or so, my hair was much more manageable.
Finish Shampoo with Cold Water RinseAfter shampooing and rinsing your hair in warm water, make your final rinse as cold as you can stand. It causes all the "scales" of the hair shaft to close back up (warm water opens them) and your hair will be as silky as can be.
Hair Washing TipsIf you wash your hair more than once a week, save on shampoo and only shampoo once. Just scrub a little longer with the one shampoo.
Using Smaller Amounts of ToiletriesA dime sized shampoo works great for me, even when my hair is long, and it saves money too. Just put a dime sized plop of shampoo in your hand, rub it, and spread it over your damp hair, and nope, it does not usually lather in your hair.
Refill Travel Shampoo Bottles With Your Favorite BrandWe all have those pesky small shampoo bottles from hotels. I decided to use one of them as an experiment after it was empty. I filled it with my favorite shampoo. As the wearer of short hair - this worked miracles!
Mayo and Vinegar for Your HairMayo and Vinegar for Your Hair. Use mayonnaise to make your hair soft unless your hair is naturally oily. . .
Buy Shampoo In BulkI'm not into brand name shampoo. I just want my hair clean. I go to my local discount beauty supply store, and buy the one gallon bottle of no-name shampoo...
Add Vodka to Your ShampooAdd a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from hair, and stimulates the growth of healthy hair.
